Inspiring Virgil Quotes Posted by on Jul 22, 2011 in Latin Language

I recently revisited some of Virgil’s works and I found that some of his quotes are deeply inspiring; even though they were written thousands of years ago!

(1) tu ne cede malis, sed contra audentior ito (The Aeneid book 6 line 95)

(2) stat sua cuique dies (The Aeneid book 10 line 467)

(3) omnia vincit amor (Eclogues Book X line 69)

(4) labor omnia vincit (Georgics Book 1)

(5) forsan et haec olim meminisse iuvabit (The Aeneid Book 1 line 203)

(6) amor omnibus idem (Georgics III)

(7) possunt, quia posse videntur (The Aeneid Book V line 231)

(8) quisque suos patimur Manes (The Aeneid Book VI line 743)


(1)   Yield not to evils, but attack all the more boldly
